    Vikings | Working On Plan For New Stadium - from www.KFFL.com
    Thu, 11 Mar 2004 12:33:16 -0800

    Bill Williamson, of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, reports the Minnesota Vikings and Anoka County officials are working on a plan to build a football stadium in Blaine, according to Vikings executive vice president Mike Kelly. The Vikings are optimistic that an agreement will be reached soon, but said the issue of a site will matter little if a stadium bill is not passed by the Legislature. The bill could be passed as soon as Monday, March 15. Anoka County officials have pledged $240 million in private and public money to help the project, which would include a training facility and other unrelated businesses.

    -I'm optomistic....


    Vikings | Not Moving Walker For Now - from www.KFFL.com
    Thu, 11 Mar 2004 12:26:46 -0800

    Bill Williamson, of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, reports Minnesota Vikings vice president of football operations Rob Brzezinski spoke Wednesday, March 10, with Vikings CB Denard Walker's agent, John Hamilton. Hamilton has said he thinks Walker should move on because the Vikings signed CB Antoine Winfield, who will start at left cornerback. However, the Vikings are in no hurry to do away with Walker. The Vikings may try to reduce his contract or try to trade him before cutting him.


    - A trade... Hmmm.....


    Vikings | In Contact With Carter - from www.KFFL.com
    Thu, 11 Mar 2004 12:20:40 -0800

    Bill Williamson, of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, reports the Minnesota Vikings have been in contact with free agent FS Tyrone Carter's (Jets) agent, Drew Rosenhaus, about bringing Carter back to Minnesota. If Carter signs a contract, it likely will be for the minimum with incentives. The Vikings tried to re-sign Carter last offseason, but the New York Jets outbid them. Carter was the Vikings' 2000 fourth-round draft pick.

    - Not a great pick-up, but I liked Carter, he'll be a welcome adition to our special teams.

Williams will not serve the sentence as long as he holds to restrictions agreed on in court, such as no second offense.

    Too bad about Wiley, apparently Wiley was so unwanted and bad, that one of the best defenses in the league (Dallas) signed him.

    Hopefully, the Vikings will address the need for a DE in the Draft or after June 1st?
    something witty and comical... followed by genuine sarcasm.
